• Le problematiche dell´Assicurazione Spaziale alla Conferenza di Firenze
Roma 3 aprile - Si concluderanno domani a Firenze i lavori della dodicesima Conferenza Internazionale sulle attività spaziali e le esigenze assicurative ad esse connesse che vede la partecipazione di oltre trecento congressisti provenienti da tutto il mondo. I Paesi rappresentati sono 29 e tra essi tutti quelli che sono coinvolti in operazioni scientifiche e commerciali collegate allo spazio. Assistono delegati delle maggiori società di costruzione di lanciatori e satelliti, delle agenzie spaziali e di utilizzatori nonché di banche, studi legali, compagnie di assicurazione e riassicurazione e società di brokeraggio internazionale.

• Profit prove elusive
Back holes have long been known as regions so dense that no matter can escape, but many (re)insurers of space projects might be forgiven for imagining that black holes have been at work sucking in their profits. The space (re)insurance sector has failed to make a profit for about five years. Most observers blame the low premium rates due to overcapacity combined with high rates of failure of rockets and satellites. A parallel recent slump in the demand for satellite-based services, such as video and navigation services, has also cut the demand for satellites and launches to well below predicted levels. That means less business for (re)insurers and brokers.

• Satellite Power Problems Plague Several Manufacturers
FLORENCE, Italy - One out of four commercial geostationary satellites launched since 1998 has a power-generation problem, and these problems have been the source of 60 percent of the insurance claims for defects of in-orbit satellites, according to figures compiled by insurance underwriter AGF of Paris.

17th Intenational Space Conference - Hotel Parco dei Principi, Rome, 8, 9, 10 May 2013
“The Impact of Space Weather and Space Exploitation on Modern Society: Hazards’ Forecasting, Prevention, Mitigation and Insurance at International Level”.

Man-made hazards such as space debris, jamming/hacking of signals, cyber terrorism, and their influence on satellites performance, have been discussed at the previous 16 International Space Conferences. These issues and others will continue to be considered and monitored also in this year’s Conference; however, the economic and social impact of ‘Space Weather’ on our modern society, massively dependant on technology and space systems, is attracting more and more attention and concern at various levels for its great and potentially catastrophic effects: this hazard will be the highlight of the 17th International Space Conference.
